All the milestones the Capitals could hit this season

Cards on the desk: me and Ian are milestone haters. I don’t know if it’s truly all that particular when a bunch leads to two zeroes. But in those grim occasions, toiling underneath the muddy boot of capitalism, we from time to time want excuses for celebrating. So I combed via some spreadsheets and located all the large severe milestones, in addition to some dumb ones too.

Things that could occur this season.

  • John Carlson hits 900 video games. He’s 13 shy now, so he could hit the mark once Saturday, November 5 in opposition to Arizona.
  • Carlson hits 600 issues. He wishes simply seven issues.
  • Carlson hits 200 power-play assists; he’s at 180 now.
  • Nic Dowd hits 50 objectives. He wishes simply 5 objectives.
  • Dowd hits 400 video games. He is 29 quick, so he will have to hit it in opposition to Seattle on Friday, December 9.
  • Lars Eller hits 900 video games. He’s these days at 870, so he could hit the milestone as early as Sunday, December 11 in Winnipeg.
  • Eller hits 200 assists; he’s 5 shy presently.
  • Martin Fehervary hits 100 video games performed. He’s at 85 now, so the milestone sport could be in opposition to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, November 9.
  • Carl Hagelin hits 300 profession issues. He wishes simply 4, aside from he’s out indefinitely.
  • Garnet Hathaway hits 400 video games performed. He has 373 now, so it could come as early as the early December roadtrip, round the fifth in Edmonton.
  • Nick Jensen hits 100 profession issues. He’s at 91 now.
  • I don’t know why you need to understand this however Jensen’s 420th sport will have to be on Saturday, November 5 in opposition to Arizona.
  • Marcus Johansson hits 800 video games performed. He wishes 47 extra, so if he can keep in the lineup, pencil in Tuesday January 17 in opposition to Minnesota.
  • Johansson may be 13 issues shy of 420 profession issues. Again, I’m now not certain why you suppose that’s a milestone, however k.
  • Darcy Kuemper’s very subsequent sport shall be his three hundredth. So that’ll be… as of late.
  • Also as of late: Evgeny Kuznetsov is set to play in his 600th sport.
  • Kuznetsov hits 500 issues. He wishes simply 4 issues.
  • New goalie Charlie Lindgren has best confronted 771 pictures in his profession. He will have to move the 1000 line by way of midseason except issues pass awry.
  • Anthony Mantha hits 400 video games as early as Tuesday, January 17 in opposition to Minnesota —  47 video games from now. Thus it follows that he’d be at 420 video games performed on Saturday, March 11 in Brooklyn. Weird trivialities that you just requested me to provide you with, however I don’t pass judgement on.
  • Connor McMichael is sitting at 69 video games performed, so I’m nice if he doesn’t play in the season opener. His subsequent sport shall be his seventieth.
  • Dmitry Orlov hits 200 assists. He wishes 20 assists, and he’s averaged smartly above that over the previous few seasons.
  • If Orlov remains in the lineup, he will have to play in his 700th profession sport as early as Thursday, February 16 in opposition to Florida.
  • And if Orlov can fit his purpose overall from ultimate season, he’ll end 2022-23 with 69 objectives. Not a milestone according to se, however you requested and I spoke back.
  • Last factor on Orlov I swear: if issues pass proper he could climb up fourteen issues in plus/minus to catch the all-time Caps chief, Rod Langway.
  • Alex Ovechkin hits 800 profession objectives as soon as he ratings his twentieth of the season. The subsequent purpose after that can tie him with Gordie Howe at 2nd position all-time.
  • Ovechkin hits 1300 video games performed. The earliest he could do this is Saturday, December 3 in Calgary.
  • As Niko identified, Ovechkin may be 149 pictures wanting the all-time NHL report.
  • TJ Oshie is already at 900 video games performed. No milestones for him. Don’t be grasping.
  • Conor Sheary hits 500 video games. He must play in 51 video games, so this could occur on Thursday, January 26 in opposition to Pittsburgh.

I’m certain there are different milestones. Ovi could develop into the man who hit fifty objectives the maximum ever, as an example. Drop extra in the feedback when you’ve were given em.

Also, I need to give a hearty shout-out to @casadoresdean, who dutifully tracks all this stuff and helps to keep us up to date.
